Truly a song that needs no introduction! This national treasure is arranged for success with power and respect for the original song. Quoting “America the Beautiful,” the arrangement begins with a flourish before settling into the opening, lesser-performed verse of the Irving Berlin standard. Gradually building to a massive finale, this anthem will have the audience singing along and cheering even before the final notes are sounded. Score and Parts for Orchestra (fl 1-2/pic, ob, cl 1-2, bn, hn 1-2, tpt 1-3, tbn 1-2, btbn/tba, timp, perc 1-3, hp, pno, vn 1-2, va, vc, db) and Brass/Percussion (hn, tpt 1-2, tbn, tba, perc 1-2) are both available as a digital download.
